    If firewall block adobe updater then turn off the firewall : A firewall is software or hardware that checks information that comes from the Internet or from a network. From the Start menu, select Control Panel, then select Windows Firewall. Select Off, then click Ok. Don't disable the Windows Firewall unless firewall block some program but if you have another security program performing the same functions, feel free.

    Adobe Reader 7.0.7 update pane doesn't have the Preferences ,A firewall can also help stop your computer from sending malicious software to other computers. If you want to enable adobe update then check from start menu . run then type regedit > Locate and select the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\ key. Right-click on updateMgr, if it is not available then you need reinstall Adobe.
